as an old friend, those of us with whom he served during your years in the senate. there are few jobs were demanding that the position to which you have been nominated. the hours are long and extremely challenging, and require sacrifices from both the secretary and his family. we traditionally give our nominees an opportunity to introduce their families at these hearings, and we would welcome your doing so during your opening statement. if confirmed, senator hagel would be the first former enlisted man and the first veteran of the vietnam war to serve as secretary of defense. you cannot read and senator hagel's account of his military service and not be impressed by it. as senator hagel explained a few years ago, but " probably most fundamental for me, when we talk about going to war, we need to think it through carefully, not just for the political and diplomatic and economic consequences, and those are important, but at least for me, this old infantry sergeant thinks about when i was in vietnam in 1968. someone needs to represent that perspective in our government as well. the people in
's not going to happen and i think that this gets us back to the main theme of the state of the union address. the way the president moves the country forward and relates to people's fears is that he says budget deficits aren't nearly -- they're important but not nearly as important as getting the economy growing now. and that's what i want to do. chris: i'll get back to what you said, david. there is a great chance to get the american people's attention. if he makes an appeal, let's get beyond the zero sum, backettey-back bickering in washington and get some stuff done this year. can he put the republican right, i guess you have to call it the republican right, in a corner? >> if he continues this theme which i think led to his success on the fiscal cliff negotiations, which is to make the republicans the party of no at a time when americans want government to work. and i think that's the way he needs to set it up. i didn't think he did that well in his inaugural address but i think he has another chance here, and if he can make it seem as if, you know, resisting him on finding an alternativ
and work with us. we care about what happens to this economy and the people who sent us here. we have proffered alternatives and solutions. we don't adhere or agree with this false choice the president's putting forward. and as cathy said, president's off campaigning in my state in newport news, virginia. yes, we're very, very concerned about the impact on the commonwealth as we are on all states. there's a way to effect the right changes and reforms so we can avoid that. and we must set aside the false choice the president is proffering. >> as the other leaders have said, the president's only -- >> all right, so that's kevin mccarthy right now. that was eric cantor before that, the speaker. doesn't look like they're putting forward a new initiative to try to break the stalemate. he's referring to legislation that members of the house, the majority, passed last -- in the last session of congress. but that legislation is not -- does not spill over into this new session of congress, if congress is going to want to take up new legislation to avert this forced spending. they have to pass
of this in the last two years. >> the president's using his bully pulpit and he's scaring people and bringing out the voices and you unleashing his cabinet to do the whole dog and pony show around the country. >> the indiscriminate deep cuts will affect everyone, really, in america. >> travelers should expect delays. >> be it this, the questionster, be it the fiscal cliff argument. be it one of arguments over raising the debt limit. in each case, we've been forced to refute a bunch of out and out ridiculous lies. >> the president is making stuff up. he puts law enforcement, he puts firemen and policemen, who 98% of them are paid for with your local taxes and say you're going to lose your local policemen because of this. it's not true. and while all of this is happening, while all of these allegations, austerity, what we're actually doing is ruining the country and spending more than we had. and creating more dependence. the whole thing is shamefully absurd. >> the sequester deadline now just one week away and the gps, superpac launched by karl rove launching a new video called obama's mess. >> yo

chrystal discusses his memoir, "my share of the task." in the book the former commander of u.s. forces in afghanistan recounts the major turning points in his 34-year military career which ended in 2010. this is about an hour. [applause] >> well, thank you very much. thanks for coming out. i think this is a wonderful opportunity. the gentleman sitting next to me is kind of a big deal. [laughter] for anyone who is, pays attention to american foreign policy and military affairs, you know that ever since the attacks on this country on 9/11 the united states has had to evolve militarily, in our intelligence community, in many ways to meet the challenge of this new enemy. and more than anyone that i can think of, general mcchrystal has been responsible for shaping that evolution and developing the what i call the targeting engine which is what we have, i think, adopted as our primary method of defending the country. so thank you for being here, general mcchrystal. the great to see you. >> thanks, mark. thanks for a too-kind introduction. i always thought of you as a nonfiction writer, but you're free to g
of soviet affairs argues that our current level of spending on defense is excessive and is making us less secure. this 45 minute program is next on booktv. >> thank you for that introduction, and thank you for the invitation to come out here to discuss the book. let me say a few things about why wrote the book in the first place. several years ago, the secretary of defense made it known before he announced that he was going to lead the administration that he was going back to the state of washington. he was someone i follow closely. he was nominated to be the cia director in 1991, and as an obama supporter, i was shocked to find out that he was going to be kept on as the secretary of defense. what he told people, i found, and it was a major reasoning for why i wanted to write this book, what he said is that we are moving towards a smaller military. one that will do fewer things than be able to go fewer places, which he thought was a terrible thing and he added that he didn't want to be a part of that kind of a system that is going to retrench. my feeling has always been that we need a sm
edelstein, great to have you with us. >> see you next year. >> yes, you will. that's "the ed show." i'm ed schultz. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. >> good evening. the only thing that is going to top yours and david edelstein's take at the oscars last night is the take we have coming up on iran. iran had a very serious reaction to first lady. we're going to be getting to that in a minute. >> they're paying attention. >> i guess that's good. at least we know they're watching. thanks a lot, man. take it easy. and thanks to you at home for joining us this hour. one of the major challenges that the republican party had this past election cycle was that their presidential candidate did not attract much interest. i don't mean that in a personal sense. i don't mean it to be mean. i mean it in a technical sense, in a measurable sense. if during this election cycle you gave people the option of clicking online on something that said barack obama or you gave people the option of clicking online on something that said mitt romney, more people would click on the thing that said barack obam
. so, doesn't make sense are if us to stop and not be able to drive anymore. >> soon as they get it open. better off it will be. cost money to sit still and cost to run the thing empty as far as fuel surge. so. hopefully they get it cleared up. martha: looks like they're working on it. they're doing pretty good job. new mexico police say westbound traffic is open on i-40. eastbound lanes remain closed. truckers will have to sit to wait it out in that direction or try to get off on side roads. also we have this for you from egypt. an awful situation where a hot-air ballon filled with tourists exploded in the sky and then fell a thousand feet to the ground. imagine how frighten this was. these are some of the tourist photos from the launch site where the victims had taken off just moments earlier. and then at least 19 tourists from europe and asia were killed in this tragic accident, after the balloon caught fire. it triggered an explosion in a gas canister. leland vittert, live in jerusalem. what exactly happened? where is this accident? >> reporter: terrifying for the folks who w
to the non-partisan congressional budget office. they told us on tuesday this year they expect the economy to grow 1.4%. i don't think there's anybody listening to my voice on our financial news network of cnbc who likes that number, 1.4%. i suspect you don't like it either, larry. they said this fiscal contraction, including the sequester is cutting 1.5% off gdp growth, the difference between 1.4% and 2.9%. would you rather look at a 3.3 gdp growth in year? i would. that's what's upsetting people. >> the bigger question is, dan mitchell, do you buy the congressional budget office numbers? >> that's a conventional forecast. >> it may be a conventional forecast but it could also be wrong. dan mitchell, i want your professional opinion. we spent our heads off for the still luck package in 2009. this is still the worst economic recovery in the postwar period. dan, why not try limited government? or let me put it a different way, slightly less spending, is that good or bad for the economy? >> the congressional budget office is still wedded to the 1950s, 1960s style keynesian model. more govern
